Best Remote support options in Linux

I am not sure if this is the right forum,but as this is an enterprise and server issue,I am choosing this.

I want to demo my colleagues at remote site how they can do / they should do something.

What are the options available in Linux?

Which works best at small bandwidths?

Thanks in advance.

If you're in a terminal I recommend a multiuser screen session.

You can use SSH. I think it's the better way: no special hardware, secure (encrypted), linux multiuser, fast, no need of passwords (you can connect with key exchange), you can easily do chroots for specific users or groups, can use gz to compress the connection, ...

What else you need?


remote, support
